Trip Description:  Let's get out on the water for a leisurely paddle on Armand Bayou. We will launch from Bay Area Park and paddle North, it is bordered by a lush, verdant landscape, providing home to alligators, turtles, and numerous bird species. 
It is alligator mating season so we will be cautious. During mating season the animals are hormonal and apt to be more skittish and  more unpredictable, so we will give them plenty of room and not hug the shores.

This is a level 1 paddle unless the wind increases., and of course this could change on the day of the paddle.   Temperature appears to be mild.  Upon returning to the put-in, we can have our lunch in the park.  


Be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, insect repellent, and snack if desired (or lunch if you choose), and of course your PFD (REQUIRED!)..

Click the Map quest link for map.  From Houston take I-45 south toward Galveston, exit on to Bay Area Blvd, take a left and travel 5.6 miles east to Bay Area Park. 

Plan to arrive in the Park by 09:00 so we can be on the water by 9:30am.

If you will be late, please call trip leader and advise.  Also notify trip leader if you are not going to paddle after having signed up for the paddle. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Stumps, alligators, heat, dehydration, snakes, mosquitoes, wasps, thunderstorms, alien life forms . . . .
